DACH-Scratch Wiki

Logo of the DACH-Scratch Wiki

The DACH-Scratch Wiki is a German-language wiki about Scratch. It was the first Scratch Wiki to be created in a language other than English. It was created by the German-speaking community of Scratch on February 8, 2012,[1] and features members from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Its members have already written over 520 articles (as of January 2016).

Because the group is not officially backed by the Scratch Team, they have some degree of autonomy from the English Scratch Wiki with their own domain and a slightly different article structure. However, they also have their similarities; they share the same wiki style and are working together to link to the other language's articles from their own.

DACH is an acronym for D — Deutsch (German), A — Österreich (Austria), CH — Schweiz (Switzerland): several countries that speak German with members active in the German Scratch community.[2]

DACH =
Deutschland = Germany,
SCHweiz = Swiss
+Österreich (AUstria)
"Deutsch ist kühl" literally translated means
"German is cool"

Interwiki

MediaWiki, the wiki platform used by the two wikis, has a feature called Interwiki, to connect wikis. Communities on both wikis have this set up to officially connect them.

Scratch Days in the DACH region

See also: Scratch Day

On May 11, 2013, there was an German Scratch Day that was organized by the members of the DACH-Scratch Wiki (especially Mtwoll). The event took place in Hattingen in Germany and was for experienced Scratchers. Many members of the wiki were there, as well as the press, teachers, former Scratch Team member Jens Mönig, and Community Moderator JSO. Photos can be seen on this article on the DACH-Scratch Wiki.

The following list gives an overview on this and other Scratch day events held in German speaking countries. The links are leading mostly to summary pages in the DACH-Wiki. The text is in German, but they have also nice impressions on posters, photos, and videos there.

Scratch Club: Weekly Hangout

Every Monday at 8PM, Central European Time, motivated members (called the "Scratch Club") meet via Google Hangout and discuss the wiki, decide the article of the week, and discuss Scratch and the world of programming in general.

Starting from January 25 2016, there will be an International Scratch Club meeting every Monday at 9PM, Central European Time, which will be held in English language and will especially welcome international guests.

The meeting logs of the Scratch Clubs can be viewed here.
